What is your role at Wirral Hospice  I My main role is to organise fundraising events from start to finish to ensure they are organised successfully. This includes talking to businesses who could possibly help and fund events we are hosting. I also give help and guidance to supporters who are organising new and exciting events for our charity.

Why did you choose to work/ volunteer at the Hospice? I have a personal connection with Wirral hospice as my mum was cared for here six years ago. Therefore I know what an amazing job the hospice does and the care they offer to not only the patients but also their families too.

My family and I then began organising our own events once a year to raise money for the hospice. A job vacancy came up a couple of years ago and due to having experience of fundraising I felt I would be well suited for the role.

What is the most rewarding part of your role?  I I would say the most rewarding part of the job is knowing that I am part of helping to raise money for such a fantastic cause. Due to personally seeing the work they do I know exactly what the money I am helping raise is going to, which gives me a great sense of achievement. I’m very proud to be a Wirral hospice fundraiser.

What events do you have coming up?  I We have a Gala Dinner planned at an exclusive venue on Thursday 9 November. This sophisticated event offers a three course meal and wine experience with  music from Oona Linnett, Harpist and the Northern String Quartet. Dinner is prepared by Dylan Jones a previous Masterchef the Professionals contestant.
